UPSC Toppers

Our History

Lead IAS is an innovative academic venture that sprouted from the early morning writing group of four aspirants. Two of the four friends got selected for IAS and IRS. And the other two are engaged as exam strategists for future Civil Service officers.

The founders have engineered Skill-Based Training based on research and experience. The programmes, thus, formed during the COVID-19 era, are still the most popular initiatives in the Civil Service Coaching arena as they help create a unique ecosystem by emphasising persuasive mentorship and analytical learning.

Our Philosophy

LeadIAS believes that the UPSC exam training should be provided in a Complete Learning Ecosystem where aspirants can avail everything they need in one place.

We design curriculums by focusing on the following:

  • • Personal Mentorship
  • • Skill-Based Training
  • • Applied Learning System

Moreover, LeadIAS provides a Learning Ecosystem where we redefine competitive examinations by providing top-to-toe facilities and opportunities for aspirants.
